¬ Provides an effective fire retardant surface layer
¬ Improves de-moulded surface finish
¬ Can achieve 130°C (266°F) Tg using vacuum bag processing
¬ Excellent drape allowing easy in-mould processing
SF130FR is a black tinted, low temperature curing fire retardant and smoke suppressant epoxy resin surfacing film.
SF130FR can be cured at temperatures as low as 85°C / 185°F, but can also be used for faster manufacture of components through its 60 minute cure at 120°C / 248°F. SF130FR provides an effective fire retardant layer to be used in conjunction with SE130FR Prepreg / ST130FR SPRINT™ to improve the surface finish direct from out of autoclave, vacuum only processing.
The resin matrix has been tested in accordance with the stringent European fire test standard, EN45545, achieving HL2 ratings in requirement groupings R1 and R7 categories (users must fire test their unique component laminates to ensure expected fire test results are achieved).
SF130FR is ideally suited to rail / industrial / commercial marine craft and civil applications where additional resin is required for producing an exceptional surface finish in conjunction with other products in the range.
